Looking for a new LCD monitor With TV Turner Built in 24" or 26"

I had a Samsung 19 inch, it just went on me, So I am looking for a replacement, I wondering if I should go Samsung again or try another brand? Also I am thinkin maybe a little bigger 24 or 26 and maybe around $300 pricetag I dont know wat else to look for when shopping for monitor, Any tips or sugestions would be helpful? Thanks

You will be hard pressed to find a decent to good one with a 24" or 26" screen for $300.00 the closest thing I see
is maybe something like this [B]SAMSUNG ToC T240HD Rose-Black 24" 5ms HDMI Widescreen HDTV Monitor 300 cd/m2
DC 10000:1 Built in DTV Tuner & Dolby Digital Surround Speakers [/B]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001280
price [B]$399.99 [/B]with FREE shipping or maybe if you want to spend around $100.00 more you can get something like the
[B]SAMSUNG TOC T260HD Rose Black 26" 5ms HDMI Widescreen HDTV Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 10000:1(1000:1) Build in TV
Tuner & Dolby Digital Surround Sound [/B]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001281 price [B]$499.99 [/B]plus shipping.

I know that Samsung have had a pretty good reputation, but I think the tide is turning. Their products are fragile and don’t last. Their RMA system is swamped and they are unable to back up their warranties. Long after their stated turn-around time, they sent me a monitor that was obviously broken. In fact broken far worse than the one I sent them. They claimed they couldn’t replace that for weeks. I had to go buy another monitor.

Once you have a ticket number, you can try their Executive number 1-800-522-7341, although I found that they merely lie about doing things instead of admitting that they don’t actually do anything to support their warranties.

I’ve had a Samsung T240HD for a couple of weeks now and love it so far. The Egg had it for $20 off in one of their sale e-mails ($379.99 shipped).

I am using a 32/550 Samsung and love it.

Thanks guys I am thinking about just going with LCD Monitor no TV Tuner, I really dont need that feature now, Plus I can get a btter Monitor if I forget about that for now, I am thinkin about Samsung or Acer Or Hanns G? What do you think?

I would go for the second (ASUS) one - $30 cheaper - better user ratings - has DVI connection where the Acer doesn’t-eh!!
